In full disclosure, my husband and I met Leslie and Bob while honeymooning at the resort back in 2011. They encouraged us to book through them whenever we wanted to go back to the DR.
We have returned several times and have booked through them, even though we have our own membership at the resort. Booking through them has quite a few advantages and you really do receive the five star treatment! They are like rockstars at the resort, haha! :) Leslie and Bob are fantastic hosts - we received a sweet note from them on arrival and they checked in with us to make sure that our vacation was going smoothly.
The villas are lovely... we have seen a few different kinds while vacationing at Lifestyles in Puerto Plata. The few times that there have been problems with the villa, a call brings someone out from maintenance immediately to check into it - whether it was a clogged toilet or even to replace light bulbs. Everyone there is incredibly friendly and helpful.
The maid service with breakfast is fabulous, and our personal concierge was incredibly useful to help us figure out what we were going to do each day. Each time we return there are new restaurants and new things to check out. They are always expanding and improving on their menus and offerings.
We've gone by ourselves and with other couples, and are looking forward to our next trip! Thanks so much Leslie & Bob! :):)
